Brigade Models give us that sinking feeling with the release of some stellar sci-fi sunken/underground terrain models in 6mm!
The desert is a harsh environment, with the combination of sun, sand and wind making life difficult for anyone trying to eke out an existence among the dunes. Some colonists have tried to protect themselves from the climate by digging themselves into the terrain and building their houses, workshops underground. In some cases they’ve built above ground and then buried the structures under a layer of plascrete and sand, leaving just the doors and windows exposed, with a few vents and exhausts.
For want of a better name, we’ve called these ones Sunken Structures. They’re based around a courtyard sunk into the ground around 25 feet or so, with doors and tunnels leading off from the open central area. Windows and vents pierce the side walls and exhaust towers protrude above the surface. Access from ground level can be by simple stairs cut into the rock or elevators running up the side of the pits. Some are accessed through small entrance buildings on the surface above. One of the structures is an octagonal pit with a large workshop door off to one side, intended as a below-ground landing bay.
The models are one-piece resin castings. They’re all cast as simple square or rectangular pieces, and all are 25mm deep – the idea is for them to be modeled into a terrain baseboard or hill/mesa using 25mm thick insulation foam.

Within the Emperor Palpatine Commander Expansion you’ll find everything you need to add Emperor Palpatine to your army as a commander—leading the Imperial forces on his own or alongside another Imperial commander such as his apprentice, Darth Vader. A single unpainted, easily assembled miniature depicts a cloaked Emperor Palpatine plotting his next move, while three upgrade cards allow you to tap into his mastery of the dark side of the Force. Finally, three new command cards give you more options for determining your battle plans, letting you make use of the Emperor’s abilities as a master strategist.
The Imperial Royal Guards Unit Expansion contains everything you need to add a unit of Emperor Palpatine’s personal bodyguards to your army. The squad of four unpainted, easily assembled miniatures stands ready to protect the Emperor or do his bidding on any planet across the galaxy. The Royal Guard is also accompanied by five distinct upgrade cards that invite you to outfit them with even more tools for protecting the Emperor.
Both expansions are expected to release in Q4, 2018.

Whenever there is a sizeable bounty to be collected anywhere across the galaxy, Boba Fett will assuredly be on the hunt in his signature ship, Slave I. A heavily modified Firespray-class patrol craft, the ship belonging to the most infamous bounty hunter in the Star Wars galaxy is sure to strike fear in anyone with a price on their head. Later this year, you’ll have the chance to add this notorious craft to your Scum and Villainy squadrons from the beginning of X-Wing™ Second Edition with the Slave I Expansion Pack.
While the pilots of the Empire and Rebellion fly in the name of their beliefs, Scum pilots have little concern for political conflicts. Rather than declare allegiance to one side or another, they are only concerned with one thing: profit, no matter how it’s obtained. And no one in the galaxy is better at tracking down their quarry and collecting the reward than the infamous Boba Fett.
The Slave I Expansion Pack includes a beautifully pre-painted ship miniature along with a maneuver dial and all the ship cards and upgrade cards you need to supplement your squadron with this versatile ship. In addition, the Slave I Expansion Pack contains a few entirely new cards that have never before appeared in the game’s first edition. These new cards and associated punchboard are included in the Scum and Villainy Conversion Kit for the benefit of veteran players!
